THE KINGMAKER CHRONICLES
This series only finished recently, however, I’ve been thinking about fantasy romance recently. My main thoughts are…there isn’t enough of it! Especially once you move out of the realm of YA. This is why Amanda Bouchet was so fantastic, she managed to hook a large audience with the Kingmaker Chronicles. By adding things we most of us are familiar with, like Poseidon, Zeus and Hades and then throwing them in to a brand new fantasy world it pulled us all in.
Then there was the romance. In this trilogy we watch Griffin a fierce warlord and Kat a displaced princess with massive untapped power and a sarky attitude fall in love. Then conquer the heck out of the rest of the continent…but in a nice way of course! The combination of magic fueled action and sensual romance married together created a series, that although not perfect, was definitely a great read.
So, if you’ve heard of this series but not tried it yet, or this is the first time it has popped on your radar check it out! It is an exciting trilogy that leaves you wanting more.
**P.S. If you are reading this Amanda Bouchet, please can we have a spin off series with some of the other characters from the Kingmaker Chronicles? Pretty please. **

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
